Wastewater Pilot Projects

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources reviewed and approved the following domestic wastewater pilot projects to be conducted in Missouri in accordance with 10 CSR 20-6.010(1)(B)8.  The department encourages the development of new processes or equipment for the treatment of wastewater.  Many wastewater treatment facilities are facing the difficulties of meeting more stringent effluent limits.  The department is working with domestic wastewater treatment facilities and manufacturers to find innovative wastewater solutions.
